    I am not staying at Disney Resort Area and I have a reservation for me and family for Chef Mickey´s breakfast at 7:10 a.m. What if I get late and just get there at 7:30 at the front entrance? Will we be permitted to get in even if we get late?

    Hi, Aline!  They generally like you to be at the podium to check in about 15 minutes before your dining reservation, so you'll want to take that time into consideration when planning your arrival time.

    If you are late, they will do their best to accommodate your party, but it is difficult to guarantee a table if you are very late.  Especially at the most popular restaurants, like Chef Mickey's, it can be tough to squeeze a party in when the restaurant is already booked.

    If you are relying on a hotel shuttle from another resort, check on the time the shuttle runs to determine if you may need to consider using a taxi instead.  If you'll have a car of your own, double check directions the night before.

    Have a wonderful vacation!
